SBS Console Opens when server starts

Hi experts,

This should be easy, but I can't seem to find the answer. If I have to reboot the server (which isn't often), the SBS Console always opens automatically. I can't seem to find a shortcut in a startup folder somewhere.

Using SBS 2008 Standard.

I'm sorry. I probably didn't write the question clearly. I am just trying to keep the  Small Business Server Console from automatically opening. It's annoying. If I want to use it, I can open it via the Start Menu or via a shortcut on my  desktop.

Thanks ktaczala,

Great site. I bookmarked it if I need it again. Like he said, you wouldn't think it would be there. In fact, I would never think of a task being scheduled for log in.

Thanks again. Thanks to both of you.
